Canals were the autostrade of medieval Milan, transporting timber, marble, salt, oil and wine into town. The largest of them, the Navigli Grande, grew from an irrigation ditch to one of the city's busiest thoroughfares by the 13th century. From April to mid-October you can take a boat tour along it for views of the churches, farms and villas that line its banks.
